Curator Mathieu Copeland discusses the poetics of interstitial, neutral, and otherwise overlooked “non-spaces” in museums and galleries, imagining how they can be activated and seen anew through a variety of perspectives, and thus subvert the traditional role of exhibitions.
On April 18 and 19, look out for Copeland and three of his art/performance students from the HEAD – Art & Design High School in Geneva, as they activate “non-spaces,” offering to Museum visitors the opportunity to experience artworks through the voice.
